Coastal Town day trip to this Stunning Andalusian Town

Beach in the coastal town of Nerja

Coastal Town

OH Nerja! You little beauty ! While for us, Nerja is a very beautiful coastal Town but while in contrast it does not have the same Andalusian charm of the city of Seville. However it still feels a very authentic Spanish Resort.  Nerja is one of the most sought-after destinations on the Costa del Sol.

Place to stay

We stayed in Malaga and used this city as our based, however we definitely wanted to do few one days out to explore  other places in Andalucia. It is only 40 minutes drive from Malaga and it is the most beautiful coastal town we have seen. It is just perfect destination if you are looking for an autumn gateway with some sun and warmer weather. We were lucky enough in November to have early summer in autumn! Apparently in Nerja town the temperatures will be always few degree higher than in Malaga.

The old town

In the old coastal town town it is a maze of little quirky streets with shops and tapas bars. Definitely great spot if you need to purchase few souvenirs. What we loved most is that suddenly time slowed down there. Everyone was just strolling around in the town and enjoying the sun. I’m sure that in high season those little streets are packed with tourists.

Beaches in Nerja

Our highlight of Nerja definitely was a little play on the beach. This coastal town has some lovely beaches. Firstly we headed to Playa de Nerja which has few steps to be reached down, but there were only few people there and it was right there next to Balcon de Europa. Perfect spot for after lunch chillout. However if you are any other time and you feel it is too busy, there are 12 beaches within the region of Nerja This includes Maro beach which has been consistently voted as one of the best beaches in Spain. 

Nerja Caves

Unfortunately we didn’t check the Nerja’s caves this time as we felt Bella was still too little and we didn’t bring carrier with us. It is one of the top things to do in Nerja and 4th most visited natural monument in whole Spain. Because most of the visitors would say it is a highlight and something not to miss. Definitely something to make us return to this beautiful Coastal town of Nerja.

Activities

There is a tourist train that can be a fun way to discover the town. Near Torrecilla Beach in the summer season there is both a bouncy castle and trampoline. Also moreover if you visiting in August, there are many night performance and activities just at the square. Most of these activities are for the younger audience.

Recommendations

We definitely wouldn’t want to spend longer than a day in Nerja as there are so many other stunning spots in Andalucia (so far our favourite Spanish region!). But furthermore we would definitely recommend it to see if you are on the way or staying in Malaga
